Greensand Country Landscape Partnership are thrilled to present illustrator and artist, Steve Larder, as part of their commissioned programme of work celebrating Greensand Country. Steve has produced two extraordinary illustrated Zines exploring Ampthill Great Park and Rushmere Country Park. The Zines will be distributed at key locations across Greensand Country and available to view online during the festival and beyond.
“I chose to interpret the brief, ‘Stories of the Landscape’, by making a fanzine about Ampthill Great Park and Rushmere Country Park. The title was an easy stepping stone for me to dig through archives relating to the area, and most importantly, visit the places themselves and talk to people who manage, maintain, volunteer and visit the landscapes. Through this method of research, I gained a deeper insight of each park and how it relates to local populations who enjoy the rich, historical countryside of the Greensand Country” Steve Larder, April 2021
